2022 is not an easy year to forget, and there is only one thing that can be done to further raise the bar – to methodically prepare the new season: 2023 starts today with the presentation of the renewed MotoGP team. The novelties are quite a few, starting from the 2022-spec Desmosedici machine with new colours: more of the iconic Ducati red with a modern touch combined with a glossy light blue (slightly pearly) to give even more power to an already beautiful and winning bike.
The arrival of Alex Marquéz is surely the biggest news. The Spanish rider will be aided by Donatello Giovanotti (track engineer) and Andrea Mattioli (data engineer) while inheriting the rest of the team that last year celebrated four wins alongside Bastianini.
On the other side of the pit-box, Fabio Di Giannantonio has one important piece of news as (former Suzuki) Frankie Carchedi joins in as crew chief. The feeling in the recent Valencia test was already quite interesting and it will only be a matter of time to see the whole team in action in February’s official test at Sepang, which will officially open the new season.
